His amazing high-energy act combines dance and DJ mixing skills, while creating stunning artwork all at the same time.
Akira is based in Japan but travels the world with his art. Recently he performed at the Street Performance World Championships in Ireland and Dubfest in Dubai.
After his performances in Croydon he will spend August in Edinburgh where he will be charming the Edinburgh Fringe Festival crowds with his quirky style and artistic flair.
